Introduced last month, the Under Armour Micro G Gridiron Trainer was designed with help and insight from NFL standouts Arian Foster and Julio Jones. As profiled in Sole Collector's interview with the designers, this trainer boasts a no-frills design built to deliver lightweight speed and strong support. The Under Armour Micro G Gridiron Trainer's upper is built with a combination of synthetic leather and neoprene which are equipped with ample perforations for breathability. A midfoot strap is implemented to harness the center of gravity and provide a lockdown fit. Cushioning in the Under Armour Micro G Gridiron Trainer is delivered in the form of responsive Micro G foam, delivering a low-profile feel. Finally, the outsole of the Under Armour Micro G Gridiron Trainer is composed of rubber and features nubs that will excel on turf surfaces. The Foot Locker-exclusive Under Armour Micro G Gridiron Trainer is set to ship this month, so lock your pair down today for $100.
